Here's A Great Ideal For Pork Chops With Mushroom Soup.
I love to make this particular mushroom soup recipe and then I deep fry double breaded pork chops until they are almost done. I then spray a baking pan with vegetable cooking spray and put my slightly undercooked double breaded fried pork chops in the pan. I then pour the above mushroom soup over the pork chops. You then wrap the baking pan tightly with tin foil and bake for 45 minutes at 350 degrees. Serve the cooked pork chops and homemade mushroom soup over hot buttered rice and you'll have a wonderful pork chop meal that you won't soon forget.
